Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a prototypic pervasive developmental disorder characterized by social interaction, and communication deficits, repetitive, stereotypic patterns of behavior, and impairments in language and development. Clinical studies have identified mitochondrial disturbances at the levels of DNA, activity, complexes, oxidative stress, and metabolites in blood and urine of ASD patients. However, these observations from postmortem brains or peripheral tissues do not provide a… Expand
What is the evidence of mitochondrial dysfunction in autism spectrum disorders ?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by impairments in social interaction and communication, combined with restricted and stereotyped patterns of behaviourExpand
Inflammation and Mitochondrial Dysfunction in Autism Spectrum Disorder.
TLDR
A number of treatment implications may arise, including preventionorientated prenatal interventions, treatment of pregnant women with vitamin D, and sodium butyrate, as well as treatment of ASD children and adults with probiotics and antipurinergic therapy. Expand
Untargeted Metabolomics for Autism Spectrum Disorders: Current Status and Future Directions
TLDR
The principles and methodology behind untargeted metabolomics, recent pilot studies utilizing this technology, and areas in which it may be integrated into the care of children with this disorder in the future are reviewed. Expand
Metabolism-Associated Markers and Childhood Autism Rating Scales (CARS) as a Measure of Autism Severity
TLDR
Overall, this investigation proves that relative ratios of numerous mitochondrial biomarkers might be predictive and efficient to differentiate between neurotypical children and ASD. Expand
Critical role of dysfunctional mitochondria and defective mitophagy in autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
The mechanism of mitophagy and its role in neurons, and the consequence ofMitophagy dysfunction in ASDs is summarized. Expand
Antigenic Targets of Patient and Maternal Autoantibodies in Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
An extensive overview of the antibodies described in ASD according to their target antigens, their different origins, and timing of exposure during neurodevelopment is given. Expand
Potential Role of L-Carnitine in Autism Spectrum Disorder
L-carnitine plays an important role in the functioning of the central nervous system, and especially in the mitochondrial metabolism of fatty acids. Altered carnitine metabolism, abnormal fatty acidExpand
Proteomic Investigations of Autism Brain Identify Known and Novel Pathogenetic Processes
TLDR
Proteomic data provide support for shared dysregulated pathways and upstream regulators for two brain regions in human ASD brain, suggesting a common ASD pathophysiology that has distinctive regional expression. Expand
Effects of l-Carnitine in Patients with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Review of Clinical Studies
TLDR
The effect of carnitine administration in ASD associated with genetic disorders is not conclusive because of a lack of clinical trials and objectives in ASD evaluation, but beneficial effects have also been reported for other comorbid disorders, such as intellectual disability and muscular strength. Expand
Powering the brain in health and disease
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the monoamine oxidase metabolite of dopamine, 3,4dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde(DOPA L) has a significant effect on astrocyte viability, reactivity and mitochondrial function, and the notion that secondary mitochondrial dysfunction induced by DOPAL may contribute to neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson's disease.

TLDR
In vivo brain findings provide evidence for a possible neurobiological subtype of mitochondrial dysfunction in ASD. Expand
Autism spectrum disorders associated to a deficiency of the enzymes of the mitochondrial respiratory chain
TLDR
Two clinical cases of ASD associated to a deficiency of the mitochondrial respiratory chain (complex I+III and IV) with different clinical presentations are shown, supporting the recent growing body of evidence that ASD can be associated with mitochondrial disorder. Expand
Mitochondrial abnormalities in temporal lobe of autistic brain
TLDR
Findings provide evidence that mitochondrial function and intracellular redox status are compromised in pyramidal neurons in ASD brain and that mitochondrial dysfunction occurs during early childhood when ASD symptoms appear. Expand

TLDR
A disturbance of mitochondrial energy production as an underlying pathophysiological mechanism in a subset of individuals with autism is suggested. Expand
Autism spectrum disorders: developmental disconnection syndromes
TLDR
A potential unifying model in which higher-order association areas of the brain that normally connect to the frontal lobe are partially disconnected during development can accommodate the specific neurobehavioral features observed in autism, their emergence during development, and the heterogeneity of autism etiology, behaviors and cognition.

TLDR
Evidence supports the notion that mitochondrial dysfunction is associated with autism spectrum disorders, and suggests children with ASD have a spectrum of mitochondrial dysfunction of differing severity. Expand

TLDR
A singleton case of developmental regression and oxidative phosphorylation disorder in a 19-month-old girl is presented and data suggest that further metabolic evaluation is indicated in autistic patients and that defects of oxidativeosphorylation might be prevalent. Expand

TLDR
Five of 11 patients studied were classified with definite mitochondrial respiratory chain disorder, suggesting that this might be one of the most common disorders associated with autism and warranting further investigation. Expand
